Go To Bed

Go To Bed

I close my eyes
But nothing happens
I think good thoughts

But dreams do not come
I to think about tomorrow
But night remains
And day won’t come
I read until my eyes can’t open
But when I close them
I am wide awake
I yell at the night
Telling it to turn to day
But night does not care
And the time
Isn’t going any faster
I count sheep
But the sheep run away
I think what else can I do
I stop thinking
And I fall into deep sleep
